The CR202 stainless steel cable reduction box can reduce the individual cables of up to 16 single axis accelerometers into one multi-conductor cable. This box is ideal for consolidating cables & reducing costs in applications with long cable runs. Input wiring from each sensor is connected to the box via quick release terminal blocks. Each terminal block includes three inputs – positive, negative and shield. The shield drain wire is earth grounded via the stainless steel enclosure. Corresponding output terminal blocks are marked within the enclosure and also feature three inputs – positive, negative and shield. Multi-conductor cabling with 8, 12 or 16 paired wires within a PVC jacket is wired to each output terminal block inside the enclosure. The multi-conductor cable exits through the bottom of the box as one single multi-conductor cable to provide input to a vibration switch box or enclosed BNC connection box for data collection.
Rated for NEMA 4X (IP66), the CR202 Series can withstand harsh environments including temperatures ranging from -58 to 180 °F (-50 to 82 °C). The box is also resistant to hose directed fluid and corrosion. A twist lock is installed on the door allowing the box to be sealed from the elements when not in use.
